Robotic Vacuum Reviews

Shaped like flying saucers and armed with multiple sensors, robotic vacuums don’t need continued human intervention to perform their intended task of picking up crumbs and fluff (pet hair, human hair etc).

Typically, a robotic vacuum would sit quietly on its docking station until it’s switched on or its scheduled clean cycle triggers it into action. Once started, the robot vacuum will return back to the dock either on completion of the cycle or when its runs low on power.

However, these appliances aren’t suited to deep cleaning applications (like carpets). Also, their dust accumulation bin needs to be cleared more often. As such, these appliances are best suited for daily or scheduled cleaning where the idea is to have the floor ‘look’ clean as opposed to it actually being clean.

What To Look For In Robotic Vacuums

A good robotic vacuum should be able to detect visible hair as well as specks of dirt. Furthermore, it’s sensors should be able to detect obstacles and drop in height. The former allows the appliance to rove against or around physical obstacles and find an alternate navigation path whereas the latter will prevent it from falling off stairs.

The more navigation patterns that a robotic vacuum is able to undertake, the better it can be programmed to perform its cleaning tasks. Commonly, such appliances follow a circular or spiral pattern in an unobtrusive environment. However, other patterns like crisscrossing, zigzags, wall hugging etc will allow it to negotiate obstacles and therefore clean more efficiently.

Depending on its battery life, the work rate with a robotic vacuum will also vary likewise. Short battery life will mean that it will have to keep returning to the charging dock more than once during a single vacuum cycle. Also, the faster it recharges, the quicker it can finish its programmed cleaning cycle.
